Has anyone found a better looking coolant overflow? Or relocated the stock one? I really don't like the location. I also need to figure out a new place to mount the ignition. I assume the two bolts on the bottom need to be drilled out?

Do you remember JDrocks coolant can and location?Yes,the ignition switch security bolts will need to be drilled off.They are a pain and center punch them as close to the center as possible before drilling.

jdrocks coolant tank and revisions.

Good work, thanks. That's kind of what I want to do. I'm going to see if anyone makes something already suited to the purpose.

You're welcome.I am planning to sell one of my bikes soon and pick up a crashed 07 650R.I hope the owner doesn't sell it before I get there.I been doing a lot of thread rereading on the Ninja conversions.

I've never had such a fit or butchered a part worse than drilling those stupid bolts.

+1 Same story here. Terrible bolts, super hard but surrounded by cheese-soft al. Woops.

Great, looks like I have something to look forward to. It looks like my stem nuts/wheel spacers will be here today(hopefully). At that point, the front end should bolt on. Spacers for the rear wheel and I am good to go. I might throw the stock ninja wheel on and take it for a spin once it is rolling.

yea, I know, I've been slacking...and right now all I can prove is that a bunch of parts near each other that resemble a bike exist. I'll try to quit slacking if you guys can try to find these damn nuts I need for my front end...

M30x1.25
M26x1.25

They're pissing me off.

They're pissing me off.

"It is for a yz450 but is aftermarket, likely Pro Taper or Ohlins.

bottom nuts (qty 2) are M30x1.25
Top nut is M26x1.25

I ordered both of these nuts from a roketta parts site but the nuts that arrived had such boogered up threads, they wouldn't fit."

are you sure you have the correct pitch? be unusual for threads to be so bad you couldn't chase them to get started.

contact Protaper or Ohlin?

I just rechecked my build thread for info on the YZ stems. stock is 30 and 28 mm diameters. if you cant find the right nuts, it might be easier to get a stock yz triple and have the stems pressed again

http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....77&postcount=7

FYI, looks like a crf450 flywheel puller has m30 threads. its a lead, anyway. not sure if it left or right but its 1.25

The reason I am using this stem is because I was able find conversion bearings. I was not able to for the stock YZ stem.
